When you’ve got a big group of people sleeping in a tent, there’s bound to be a few quibbles and quarrels when you’re all crammed in like sardines – but not with the Oztrail Latitude Dome Tent. This tent has two bedrooms which are separated by a living area and sunroom - so everyone can get a break from each other while still sleeping under one roof.
You get the whole gang together and utilise the entire space, or you can use it with less people and have a more liveable and spacious shelter. The Latitude can be used for both short and long stays, and has good weather protection thanks the UV treated fly and heat taped seams which’ll keep everyone nice and dry. You won’t have to worry about any insects getting in thanks to the No-See-Um mesh on the windows, which’ll also keep fresh air circulating inside the tent.
The geodesic frame of this tent will help to brace your tent against harsher winds, and will keep water from pooling on the top of your tent - so the Latitude will stay sturdy even in miserable weather. You won’t have to stress about everyone’s stuff getting jumbled together, as there are handy side storage lockers at the rear and organiser pockets inside keep everything organised. For the family or group that sometimes need a bit of break from each other, the Oztrail Latitude Dome Tent is a solid option.
Very happy with the purchase, excellent value for money. A great size tent for our family of 5, used recently in cold/dry conditions, performed well. Easy to put up, nice features. Super service from Snowys, fast shipping, great price... happy camper!
I love the tent as it was easy to set up, tons of space with four kids BUT a bit of a strong wind, and the poles broke and the tent top. Snowy was very helpful and send me some new poles, I guess I thought a tent should stand a bit of wind.would be good if the top tent was stronger material
Thanks for sharing your experience Jody - although, I'm sorry to hear that you're not loving your new tent.
As you'd expect, when the wind starts to pick up, the bigger dome tents are likely to cop a bit of a beating, compared to the smaller lightweight tents. As this tent is a big boy, I'd recommend taking a look at this blog post next time the wind starts to pick up - 6 Ways to Storm & Weatherproof your Tent.
I hope this helps, Laine :)
Love the colour coordination - very helpful.
Put it up slightly skewed but lesson learnt for next time. Both nights severe storms, some leakage - very little but think they was our dodgy putting up!
Delivery by Snowys excellent. More than happy to deal with them again, in fact we will.
Happy with the purchase. Very large tent l. Carry bag has no wheels so it's heavy for moving. Agree with the previous comments re material quality however with this price can't complain. Cheers, Ajay
For the price this is a good tent. Tonnes of space! It did leak a little when we had rain, and it feels a little less 'tough' than other tents.. as in it may not last as long.... but for a tent this size (it is massive) at this price .. no complaints.
Is there a tarp that goes with this tent?
No, I probably wouldn't recommend putting a tarp over the top of the Oztrail Latitude Family Dome Tent. If you did though, there's not specifically one designed for it, you'd need to just get one that's the closest in measurement. I would recommend, however, that you consider using a tarp for underneath the tent to give the floor some extra protection.
I am looking for a supplier of this specific tent in SA. The companies that I contacted are either out of stock or they don't keep it. Have you got the name of a SA supplier of this tent, or can you ship one off to me. If so, what would the cost more or less be.
Thanks for taking an interest in Snowys, but at this time we are only shipping to Australia.
As far as I can find Oztrail stock their products in South Africa through Seagull Industries, so perhaps you can inquire with that company about the availability of the Latitude Dome Tent.
Good luck with tracking down the tent you're looking for, sorry we couldn't be of more help.
Hi, just wondering how long this tent takes to set up?
Hi Kris, I would allow 30 - 45 minutes to set this tent up, depending on how many helpers/how much experience you've got! This is definitely the sort of tent that you would only want to use when you're staying somewhere for at least a few days.
Hi, I am just wondering what the real-world difference is between water rating 3000 & 2000? With heavy rain will we get leakage with a 2000?
Basically the higher the water rating, the more the tent can repel that unwelcomed rain cloud. A long light shower can also have an effect on the water resistance of your tent as it will soak the fabric and seams causing wicking through the fabric and dampening the inside of the tent.
One way to help overcome this is to look at purchasing Seam Sealer for under $15 which will increase your waterproofing quite dramatically. The seams are often the part of the tent which tends to leak first so this product adds better waterproofing to the tent to ensure you get to sleep the night in a comfy dry tent.
Hi, do the internal rooms have mesh and solid dividers to create privacy between rooms and are they from floor to ceiling zip up?
I've just got off the phone with Oztrail, and they've confirmed that the Latitude only has a solid door option.
The internal doors definitely zip all the way around, and you can kind of see what this looks like (if you zoom in) on the third image linked on the product page. I hope this was helpful!
Hi....Does this tent have Power cord access ?
I've just checked with Oztrail, and the Latitude definitely has a power cord access port, as well as a light attachment point and organiser pockets.
Is this the same as the oz trail villa? I like the villa has full fly mesh zip up to seperate bedrooms- is this the same?
I've just had a chat with the Oztrail rep about the Latitude vs the Villa, and he's confirmed that they are very similar tents.
Both styles have two bedrooms seperated by a living area, space for 12 people, waterhead rating, awnings and mesh (and fabric) doors to seperate the bedrooms - so there isn't much that seperates the two.
The Villa isn't made anymore so I'd say the Latitude is the closest to that tent in the Oztrail range.
Are the awning poles included with this product? another website mentioned that they aren't.
I've just had a look at the supplier's catalogue and the stock we have, and I've found that the awning poles are not included for the Oztrail Latitude Family Dome Tent.
